Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the community? Can you see yourself sharing your time, talents or treasures with the world but don't know how to do it? You have found the right place! Rotary is more than just business networking at weekly meetings. We do fundraisers that help us fund local services such as the Sierra College Emancipated Youth, Organizations that help survivors of Human Trafficking and yes we even have a little fun and take local schoolkids out fishing! Come by a meeting, click on a link and send us an email to say hello and see how you can be part of Rocklin's exclusive group of Rotarians!

Welcome President Ron!


The Demotion/Promotion Dinner was a success! As usual the bell disappeared by the end of the meeting.  Our Dinner at Il Fornaio was exquisite and allowed us to come together outside of our usual meetings to better connect and share accolades for a few outstanding members.  


Ron set the tone of his term by asking each of us to invite more guests so we can increase our membership. Also that doing one act of kindness each day not only upholds who we are as Rotarians, but exemplifies how we live the 4 way test.


Our club is once again helping to lead a Rotary session at this fall's Feed My Starving Children MobilePack at William Jessup University in Rocklin. Mark your calendar for an Oct. 20 pack from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.


To help pay for the meals Rotary will pack, the Feed My Starving Children group is hosting its one and only fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Randy Peters Catering in Roseville.


Randy and Lisa Peters are graciously donating their space, food, and service for the evening, which will also feature local craft brews like Monk's and Loomis Basin, along with local wines. Fox 40's Paul Robins is our MC. 


We are asking Club members to buy tickets to the event -- just $35 each -- to help raise money for Feed My Starving Children.  Yes, food, wine and beer for just $35 -- best of all the $35 pays for 160 meals we will pack at our MobilePack in October. We are also looking for sponsors and auction items. 


The goal is that rather than having clubs make contributions that we can make this fundraiser successful by working with Feed My Starving Children.
